Took delivery of my Model S, 4 days ago and can’t stop raving about the car. I have a 85 kWh battery with single charger. When plugged in to the wall via mobile connector into a NEMA 14-50 plug on a 240V/ 50 amp circuit the car shows it is drawing 235-240V and 40 Amp but is only charging at a rate of between 20- 25 miles/hr not the 31 miles/hr Tesla advertised. Outside temperature while charging has been between 50-60 degrees. Have others had similar experiences or do I have a problem?
